Sketchy Thursdays and Echo Park

I've been loving the sketches at Sketchy Thursdays coz the simplicity leaves a lot of room for the imagination. My two latest layouts are based on their sketches. Too bad I wasn't able to upload the other one in time. Anyway, I also used my Echo Park stash for these two layouts.

This layout is based on this week's sketch. The minute I saw these pics, I knew my title will be "SOAKED!" Used Echo Park Happy Days for this one.

Here's the sketch:

This next layout is the one that didn't quite meet the deadline....

Obviously, I'm still working on pics from last summer. LOL! Talk about backlog but I'm getting there...

Drama Queen

"You don't love me!" is a line that Ally said a lot just before she turned 5 years old last July. I don't know where she heard this or where she got this line but she says it when we raise our voice on her. This continued for a few months....luckily, she hasn't been saying it anymore. I wonder how she'll react to this story when she grows up. So, here's a layout about this story.

Some close- ups:

BTW, this layout is based on Prima's October Build-A-Page. Here's the lovely sketch:
